MLA 2018 Special Session (not yet guaranteed)
This MLA special session panel invites papers that examine how contemporary South Asian comics respond to political crises and/or structural inequity. How do South Asian comics represent gender, caste, class and religious violence/oppression? Possible topics include but are not limited to the representation of marginalized groups‘ struggle for justice, vigilante heroes, the nation-state’s propaganda machinery, etc.
300 word abstracts and brief bio due by 15 March, 2017 to Anuja Madan (firstname.lastname@example.org).
